      Crews find body in Silver Lake after 2-day search

      SILVER LAKE, Wash. - Crews recovered a body from Silver Lake on Saturday, the second day of a search for a possible drowning victim there, officials said.

      A resident who lives along the Silver Lake shoreline called 911 at about noon Friday to report seeing someone struggling in the water near a boat.

      Everett police and fire crews responded to the lake and found a small fishing boat floating in the lake, but no occupant.

      During the search and investigation, officials also learned that a local man who lives on the lake was missing.

      A search-and-rescue team from Everett Fire Department brought in divers and a remotely operated underwater vehicle with a camera. Nothing was found after several hours and the search was called off Friday at dusk.

      A crew returned to the lake Saturday at about 8 a.m. and resumed the search. At about 10:30 a.m., the Everett Police Marine Unit recovered the body of an adult male who appeared to be in his mid-40s.

      The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office responded to the scene and took custody of the body to determine identity as well as the cause and manner of death.
